Check the warrenty

Man I hate being broken. My back went out AGAIN. Now I'm back to walking with a dang cane for a few days. It sucks.

Looks like we might have some prospective buyers for the house. They had an open house on Sunday and a few folks expressed a lot of interest. Still not sure where I'm going when it's sold. But I've decided that I don't want to leave the state if possible. Just too much of my life is here.
Not that that life is going all that great right now, but what the heck it's the only life I've got.

Still need to find the time and money to have my car checked out before I leave for Canada. I'm going on the 18th and will be back on the 27th. going to do another night drive. Less traffic and a lot less hassle.

Will be getting to meet my friends Roe-Roe's new little one this Wed. It took a while but the adoption went through and now they have a little boy in the house. After all the trouble they went through to get it I have no dobt thats going to be one well taken care of little child.

Ok, the back won't let me sit here anymore so I'm off.

Awake and thinking, what a Bad combo.

3:50 am. No sleep in sight. Insomnia sucks. I'm so wasted during the day, yet once the sun comes down my mind doesn't seem to want to call it quits.
So I'm sitting here at my sisters, she's away in Canada so I'm using her house as a getaway for now, listening to the Indigo Girls remake of Tangled up in Blue, which I highly recomend to everyone. Babushka is coming to visit tom morn before she has to go to work. Some people are coming to look at the house so I can't be home tom. Still feels weird knowing that strangers are walking through my room.
Neighbors should be home tom too, so no more using thier pool. Poop.
Had a great storm tonight. Only lasted about a half anm hour, but there was thunder and lightning and the trees were whipping in the wind and the rain fell like the end of the world, apocalyptic type stuff. I just love a good storm.
Mr B. offered to have me go with him to see the Poet tonight and I turned him down. Huh? Oh , maybe I should explain. See the Poet was a friend of mine through my Bro when I was younger, around high school years. He was a good kid, very sentimental and poetic. Quiet but good in a wierd kind of way. Even after Bro left for bOregon Poet and I would get together and go for walks and talks all over Staven. We'd go down the beach during storms and sit under a golf umbrella and he'd smoke some grass and I'd drink some wiskey and we'd watch the lightning on the water.
He evntually met a girl and got a place and I'd go over for dinner sometimes. Then there was a small period when we just seemd to not be able to get together for a bit. No ones fault, juts life. Then one day I went to call and it said the phone was out of service. So I found time to go visit and well... turns out the Poet had moved and not remembered to tell me.
That was about 7 years ago.
Now it turns out Mr. B has kept in touch with him over the years and wanted me to go. Yet I just couldn't bring myslef to do it. I've always said that any friend of mine is a frined for life and no matter what happens I'll always welcome them back into my life, but this to me isn't him wanting to come back. Cauyse I've also always said that I won't force people to be friends with me, and going to see him now would feel like that to me.
Maybe I'm wrong. Who knows eh?
But it's the same reason I've never hunted down the Demon, or stopped by Heavens work, or tried to look up Biker Babe. If they miss me they know my number and they know I'll have a hug waiting for them. But I won't force them.
Ah, maybe this is all just 4am thinking. That small hour in the morning when most people are asleep, which is good because the mind starts to act in odd ways. I've always said that 4am is when the nightmares come, maybe they come even if your awake. When the shadows move in the corner of your eyes, when the wind almost sounds like it's saying words you almost recognize, when the movements of the house don't seem so random. It's a fun time to be awake, if you can just keep the mind from wandering too far.

Action in Trouble

So I was watching an action movie today, and it got me thinking. All these action heros always seem so cool and dependable when there's trouble. It makes me wonder which of them would actually be any use in case of a real emergency. I mean any major emergency. A massive earthquake, war, city on fire, Zombie apocalypse, any life threatening major emergency. Would they be any use? How close are they to thier screen portrayals?
So here's my question: Which two action movie heroes would you want with you in case of a real emergency? If your life and the lives of those you love were on the line which of them would you really want there? (It will be them in the prime of thier careers, so you can pick ones even if thier now old or even dead.)
Also, which two of them do you think would be completely useless in a real crisis situation?
(Now remember, this is supposed to be in a real life situation, so no picking someone just becuase you find them attractive. I'd love to be stuck with Cathrine Zeta Jones, but not if I was stuck in a collapsing building that I needed help to escape.)

Just to jog some memories, here's a quick list of action heroes that I can come up with just off the top of my head:
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson, Jackie Chan, Vin Diesel, Tom Cruise, Jon Claude Van Dam, Stephen Segal, Steve McQueen, Angelina Jolie, Bruce Lee, Brandon Lee, Dwayne Johnson (aka the Rock), Sean Connery, Val Kilmer, Kurt Russell, Kevin Costner, Bruce Willis, Harrison Ford, Jennifer Lopez, Pierce Brosnon, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Cathrine Zeta Jones, Denzel Washington, Orlando Bloom, Jet Li, Dolf Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Brandon Frazier, Will Smith, Keanu Revees, Wesley Snipes, Nick Cage, Antonio Banderas, Errol Flynn, Sigorny Weaver, Hugh Jackman, Brad Pitt, John Wayne, Matt Damon, John Travolta, Charles Bronson, Douglas Fairbanks, Halley Berry.

As you can see there's quite a list, and maybe you have someone in mind I didn't think of. Just name 2 that you think would be usefull, and 2 that you think would be useless.

Touched by an Ant

Ok, so most of you have read about my little Ant before. She's the daughter of Isis, one of my longest freinds and also an ex-girlfreind of mine. We were together for about 3 years and during that time Ant and I got very close. Her real father didn't have much to do with her growing up. Oh he spends time with her now, acctually had her live with him for almost a year, but thats all happened in the last 4-5 years or so. She is the closest thing I have or will probably ever have to a dughter of my own. Even when Isis and I have had our very few fights Ant and i have stayed in touch and stayed close.
Well Iw as on the phone with her last night telling her about Midget's wedding and some of the stuff that went on. The conversation went roughly like this.
Ant: So you ended up having a really good time then?
Me: Yeah. I evemn danced twice. (I don't normally ever dance if I can help it.)
Ant: You know, someday I'm going to have to plan my wedding.
Me: Yep. I bet you'll look lovely all dressed in white.
Ant: Blue.
Me: Blue? Not White?
Ant: Blue. I don't like how I look in white.
Me: So will I get to see you in your blue dress?
Ant: Of course, you and my father will be the ones walking me down the aisle.

I almost cried when she said that. It was just an Awwwww moment for me. I just had to share that cause it made me happy.

You know, I was going to write a post about Midgets wedding. About some of the stuff that happned (Like meeting Bald God's wife after hearing about her for the last 13 years. Or the fact that when they told Midget he could kiss the bride the Preacher pulled out a step stool for him to stand on while he kissed Amazonia. Or how beautiful Amazonia looked in her dress, and how nice Midget looked in his tux, ect. ect.) But right now there is a full out lightning storm going on and it's just managed to get my full attention.
I love storms. The sky lighting up with that electric blue color, the sound of the rain, the feel of the wind. I just came in from our back porch and now am sitting here with the window open so I can still hear the crash of the thunder and the pounding rain. (but I hope we don't lose power could that would suck.). Funny enough as I look at the window I just noticed there is a tiny frog clinging to the screen. Thats cool.
Our neighbors are away on vacation and I'm trying to decide if I feel like sneaking into thier yard and going for a swim in the rain. I can't go during the day until the sunburn I got has faded a bit (my shoulders look like Bob Ross's color Cadmium Red. If you understand that then your old too. Heh)
Hope everyone's doing good and I'll write about the wedding next time. But for now I'm off to go sit and watch the storm a little while longer before I try and go to bed.

Sorry for the lack of attention to the blog latly, but it's been a busy week. This Saturday I'm in Midgets wedding. Yep, Midget and Amazonia are tying the knot. For some reason they figure putting this old Wookie in a monkey suit is a good idea. They are having the rehersal the night before. Add in that I'm also having to take the car in to get serviced, take my Lil Sis to the dentist for oral surgery, and find a way to help my little Babushka get to both the rehersal and wedding (she is kinds sorta bad at directions.) and it should be quite an interesting 2 days.
Hope everyone's doing great and I'll be back next week with updates on the Wedding as well as hopefully pictures.

Happy Annivesary...alone.

Well, it's mine and Babushka's Anniversary today, and tom. Unfortunatly she's busy both days so I don't get to see her till Saturday. It sucks, but I understand.
It's been 5 years, with a break of 1 somewhere in there.
Why a 2 day ann.? Well see, we started dating late at night and we've never been sure if it was before or after midnight, so we figured if we use them both then we'll always be able to celebrate at least one of the days right?
Well, except this year.
Anyways, Happy Anniversary my little Angel, I love you.
